Inter demolish Hellas Verona as Calhanoglu produces a ferocious strike followed by Dzeko and Lautaro’s brace. It was a crucial game for both sides as Inter are looking to cement their position in the top four. While Hellas Verona are desperate for points to get out of the relegation zone. Inzaghi had to make some changes because of the fixture congestion ahead.
The Nerazzurri had the majority of the ball at the start and were calm in possession. But Verona found the first shot on target as they targeted the space behind Dumfries with a long ball. Lazovic brought it down and placed a brilliant through ball for Verdi. The Verona playmaker fired his shot toward Handanovic, and the Inter captain managed to keep it away.
Inter then started to dominate the game and found a series of corners. Montipo made a couple of excellent stops before Gaich found the net with an own goal. Calhanogu and Dimarco combined well for a short corner and the Italian defender’s whipping cross was half cleared by Gaich and went into the net. Then the floodgates opened, as Calhanoglu found some space to launch a marvelous long-ranger. The swerve on the ball gave Montipo no chance as it landed in the top corner. Inter found another goal right after the restart as Mkhitaryan won the ball and gave it to Lautaro. The Argentine striker found Dzeko in space, and the Bosnian finished with ease.
Inter demolish Hellas Verona as Dzeko and Lautaro net a brace
Verona made a couple of changes, but Inter started where they left off. Lautaro produced a delightful chip over the keeper for his 18th Serie A goal this season. Brozovic won the ball high up the field to feed the Argentine. Inzaghi decided to make several changes to keep his squad fresh for the Roma game on the weekend.
However, the Italian manager did not substitute Lautaro or Dzeko. Both went on to complete their brace. Verona’s defense was miserable at this point, and Acerbi found space to drive the ball forward. The former Lazio defender found Dzeko around the edge of the box. The Bosnian striker placed his shot with ease as Verona had almost given up on defending. Lautaro’s second goal was the final nail in the coffin as the Argentine scored a scrappy goal in the added time. Inter will arrive at Stadio Olimpico with immense confidence on Saturday.
